Guacamole Recipe from www.treehugger.com

Best Damn Guacamole Ever

4 ripe avocados
3 tomatoes
1 lime, zested
2 limes, juiced
1/2 bunch of cilantro, washed and dried
1 red onion, finely chopped
2 green onions, diced
1 serrano chiles, finely diced
1 clove of garlic
Salt

1. Carefully cut each avocado lengthwise around the seed.

2. Twist the two halves to open.

3. Hold the avocado in one hand with a towel, for safety (do as I say and not as I do).

4. Gently whack the pit with a knife to wedge it in. Twist the pit out.

5. Scoop the flesh into a large bowl and mash.

6. Slice the bottom off each tomato using a serrated knife.

7. Using the same knife, make "C" cuts to the tomato. The key here is to cut off the flesh and to avoid the seed membrane.

8. Dice the tomato slices. The remaining tomato ball is perfect for soup stock!

9. Finely chop the red onion, garlic and green onions.

10. Remove the cilantro leaves by holding the bunch with one hand and "peeling" off the leaves with a knife away from you.

11. Don't worry if you get some stems. Finely chop the leaves.

12. Finely chop the serrano chile. Wear latex gloves if you are sensitive to the oils. Seed first if you want less heat.

15. Mix enough to coat all of the ingredients with the mashed avocado. Salt to taste.

16. Reserve some for yourself because once your friends and family get a hold of it, it will be all gone!
